the pressure on to make sure that we do get a vote. >> i want to play something that vice president joe biden said at this conference. take a listen. >> they come from a small percentage of the gun crimes in america. more people out there get shot with a glock that has cartridges that you can have magazines that have two, ten, 12, 15, 30 shells in it than from any assault weapon you see. >> it sounds like vice president biden's backing away from the ban on assault rifles. is there a chance that that measure was offered up as a political sacrificial lamb of sorts? is there a chance that a lot of folks knew they had no way of getting that through and they offered it up to be able to say, you know what? we didn't get everything that we wanted. well, i don't think the vice president is backing away at all from his support of the assault weapons ban, but there are three components and i applaud the president for wanting to pass some kind of comprehensive bill, but the main three components that we'd most like to see is the assault weapons ban and the elimination of the multi-round gun clips that h

flattered. >> t >> vice president biden in richmond, virginia on friday focused on background checks and vice president did not mention the ban on assault weapons. do you think that the ban iwas offered up as sacrafical lamb? >> no. the point is common sense gun safety legislation. that so many millions americans support at this time. and so, you have definitely had a change from where we were five, ten, 15 years ago. so, at this point, the nra, even the nra leadership is out of step with its own leadership and out of step with the majority of americans and there was a difference, i think it's important to say, there's a dichbs between the protection of rights and the protection of profits. nra leadership is trying to protect the profits not the rights of the leadership. >> if you notice, there's overwhelming support among americans for background checks. we have them as a matter of fact. but getting back to the assault weapons ban, it's significant that joe biden did not mention that. as senator majority lead harry reid said does not support a assault weapon's ban. one of the republ
